     obrotamer — generate conformer/rotamer coordinates


     obrotamer filename


     The obrotamer tool can be used as part of a conformational search by generating random
     isomers based on rotating dihedral angles. These rotamers are not conformers -- that is,
     obrotamer does not perform geometry optimization after generating the rotamer structure. The
     obminimize tool can do geometry optimization using molecular mechanics.


           obrotamer baseconformer.sdf >rotamer1.sdf

     Generate a random rotational isomer of baseconformer.sdf and write it to rotamer1.sdf
